The Hunter Valley in New South Wales, Australia was a fun detour out of Sydney. If you missed my Guide to Sydney, make sure to check it out. To get to Hunter Valley we rented a car, which for us Americans was an adventure in itself with driving on the opposite side of the road and the driver sitting on the right side of the car. Scott and I did end up on the wrong side of the road more than once, but we made it safe and sound to Lovedale, which is situated in the Hunter Valley – a region renowned for it’s wine. So we knew we had to visit when we booked our flight to Sydney!
